For example, if you are using straps with a WLL of 500 lbs each to tie down a load weighing 1,000 lbs, then you need at least 2 straps to safely secure that load. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

Erickson Re-Tractable, Bolt-On Tie-Down Straps

These Erickson ratchet straps take the hassle out of tying down gear - especially the cargo you transport frequently, such as your boat or motorcycle. Each ratchet housing permanently mounts to your truck bed, trailer, or ladder rack with a single bolt, which is included.

To use one of the tie-downs, simply push down the red release button and pull out the strap. Then secure the vinyl-coated steel S-hook to your cargo and ratchet the strap until it's tight. You have to hook up just one end of the strap each time. And because the straps are permanently mounted, you'll never have to search for a missing tie-down. This saves you time and frustration and gets you out on the road in a flash.

Video Transcript for Erickson Cargo Tie Downs EM34417 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number EM34417. These are the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps. It's going to come with 2 straps. I would have pulled one out of the packaging, in that way we could take a closer look at it and go over some of the details. Now these are heavy-duty, retractable ratchet strap that are going to make it very easy to secure your cargo. It's going to feature a push-button release which is going to be this red button right here. That's going to allow for simple, rapid unloading.

It's going to have two different positions with three different functions. In this position which is just below the notch, it's going to allow you to extend the ratcheting line or the ratchet strap. It's also, in this position, going to allow you to push down and push the red button to allow itself retract. You can see how that works there, I'll do it a little bit faster. It retracts, it's going to take and just lock automatically just by pushing that button with it in the down position. Then the other position is just going to be your ratcheting position.

If we have it extended, you can move it up to a ratcheting position. That's going to allow you to a ratchet it tight. It's a really nice little strap. The unused strap is going to retract into the housing for a convenient storage. Again, it's going to feature that push button release. That's going to keep the strap from flapping in the wind.

You dont have to worry about any excess strap. Everything is secured in the housing. It's going to feature a rubber coating on the ratchet handle that's going to provide a good grip. Thats going to be right here. The vinyl-coated S-hook is going to protect your cargo from scuffs and scratches. This can permanently mount to your trailer, truck or rack with 1 bolt.

The mounting hardware is going to be included so you're going to have 1 bolt, washer and lock knot for each strap. The durable construction is going to offer a long-lasting performance so its got a corrosion-resistant steel body with a sturdy polyester webbing that's built for durability and strength. The strap dimensions is going to give us 1" in width. Overall length is going to measure 9". The maximum load or break strength is going to be 1,200 lbs for each strap. With a safe working load limit of 400 lbs for each strap. Now, you're going to get 2 tie down straps. Real quick, I just want to go over the actual dimensions of the bolt. Each bolt is going to be identical, now these bolts going to give us an overall length of 3 1/8" t the bolt head. The threaded portion is going to measure 2 7/16". The diameter of the threaded portions are going to be 5/16". To get it installed and secure, you can simply use a half inch socket as well as are unison with a socket ranch. That's going to be for both bolt head and a lock knot. I want to show you where that bolt hole is, you know, the ratchet. It's going to be right here. If you want to really install it, get a nice good installation and secure grip. It's going to be beneficial to go and raise the ratching handle all the way up. It's going to allow you to access it. You need to get to that bolt hole that way you can secure it. Again, whether it's through your trailer, your truck or a rack or really any setting. Some people even install them on the wall, in their garage or some self tapping larger screws or bolts. It's got a variety of applications. You dont have to use these bolts. We have an install video on this product page where the application that we use was a little bit of a thinner surface that we mounted it to. We changed up the mounting hardware. You are going to get the included hardware to get you started and hopefully it's going to work for your application. That's going to do it for today's review of part number EM34417. These are going to be the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps. .

This product will be used to secure a mobility scooter to a platform. The current straps I'm using have to be attached and threaded each time I use them. These retractable straps will simplify my task dramatically. I have to thank the customer-service people at etrailer.com, who kept me informed throughout the ordering and shipping process. 131250


They are working out great for me. They are easy to deploy, easy to stow, hold the scooter securely, and because they are attached to the platform, theyre always right there for me.

Spent a lot of time researching online -- found etrailer.com and their videos are and descriptions are priceless when you don't have the luxury to play with something like this. Shipping was amazingly fast and affordable (even to ALASKA!) I needed a solution to keep my floatplane on a set of dollies in the hangar. Traditional ratchet straps had a long tail and no place to go when the aircraft was not on the dollies. It was a 10 minute process just to strap the plane on. Installed these Erickson Straps in about 10 minutes on the dollies and am very happy. No I can strap the plane in about 30 seconds! 123883

These bolt-on retractable straps are perfect for my truck rack. They are much more usable than the loose retractables I was using before, and much more dependable and safe than bungee cords. They make securing my ladders quick and easy. No more loose tails to tie up. On the weekend the ladders come off and my kayak takes their place. I highly recommend these straps. I have one on all 4 corners of my rack. 154465

Ask the Experts about this Erickson Cargo Tie Downs
Do you have a question about this Cargo Tie Down?

  • Do Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, Part # EM34417, Automatically Retract
  • The Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, part # EM34417, use high strength polyester straps that measure 1 inch wide by 9 feet long. The extra strap length will retract onto the storage hub when the red button (located under the ratcheting handle) is pressed. The auto-retract function is spring operated. Depending on the load you are securing you may want to consider the Erickson Chrome-Protector Sleeves, part # EM06305-2. These easily slip over the straps and can be positioned...

  • Where is the Mounting Hole on the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, # EM34417
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, # EM34417. The mounting hole is located under the handle. I have made short video that shows the mounting hole location for you to view.

  • Is the Erickson Re-Tractable, Ratcheting, Bolt-On Tie-Down Strap, # EM34417 Corrosion Resistant
  • The Erickson Re-Tractable, Ratcheting, Bolt-On Tie-Down Strap, # EM34417, would be a good choice for marine applications. The metal parts are steel but have a zinc-dichromate coating for corrosion resistance. The handle is made of sturdy plastic that will not rust. You should not have problems with it seizing in a marine environment. To pro-long the life of it, you can clean off any salt deposits after use. Tie-down straps should always be chosen according to their Safe Working Load...

  • Availability of 8 Foot Long Tie-Down Strap to Use on a Tarp
  • To use a rubber strap you would need to attach 2 or 3 straps, like the Erickson Rubber Tarp Strap, part # EM06741, together to be able to reach that length. I do not have a single rubber tarp strap that will stretch to 8 feet. I do offer tie-down straps and ratchet straps that would be able to give you the 8 foot distance you need. A few examples would be the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, part # EM34417, that is 9 foot long. Also, have three choices in the 10 foot...

  • Why Does it Seem Like My Erickson Ratcheting Tie Downs are Coming Loose
  • I think something else might be happening here, it sounds like you are getting the tie-downs tight and locked but then as you drive the wheelchair might move or the strap might slide and then the tension that was in the tie-down has been reduced and feels like the strap has come loose. It is not uncommon to have to tighten and re tighten loads periodically as you are traveling down the road. If you put the lever of the all the way in the down position it will be locked.

  • Length and Diameter of Mounting Bolts for Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps # EM34417
  • The mounting bolts for the Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps are 5/16 inch in diameter and are 3-1/8 inches long. The working load limit (WLL) for each strap is 400 lbs, which means that although the straps can withstand load spikes up to 1200 lb, you should not exceed a 400 lb load on the strap.

The overall ratchet housing measures 5-1/2-inches from end to end and 2-1/4-inches wide at its widest part. The base portion that bolts down to your preferred mounting surface measures 4-inches long x 1-3/4-inches wide. Please...
